The S.C. House overrode Gov. Nikki Haleys vetoes to cut education spending, the state Arts Commission, S.C. ETV and the GOP presidential primary today.
The House voted to override Haleys veto of $56 million for K-12 education by a 97-8 margin. Members of the Republican-controlled House then voted 103-6 to restore $12.4 million for new school buses. Haley, also a Republican, had vetoed the money, saying she wanted to privatize the bus system. The House also voted to restore another $20 million for schools, 89-18, which Haley had vetoed.
In other overrides, the House voted to restore:
• $1.9 million for the state Arts Commission.
• Almost $6 million for S.C. ETV.
